They may be in the middle of the rainy season, but the months of January and February still record perfect temperatures and balmy nights.
You can expect top maximum temperatures of 33°C in January and February and lows of around 24°C. In the higher altitude areas, temperatures can get as low of 15°C at night. The sun is usually shining on average for six hours a day for each month – plenty of time to accrue a vacation tan.
Dreaded by so many from cooler climates, humidity is always high at this time of year. Expect 80% humidity for both months. If you don’t like it steamy make sure your villa has air conditioning, especially in the bedrooms.
Being monsoon season, you are unlikely to escape any showers but you may find the rain is shortlived. Average rainfall for January and February is 90mm for each month, which along with March and December are the highest rainfall months of the year. The average number of rainy days in January is 16 and 15 for February.
